Star soccer player murdered - March 15th 2010, 06:50 AM

A murder taken place in my hometown just last night. A student from my old high school was killed. He was a soccer player for my high school. He also was named last season to The Republican All-Scholastic team. In 2006 he was on the Baystate Games championship team, the Western Mass. Warriors.

He was stabbed to death Saturday night and another student wounded when an altercation broke out at a birthday party at a small restaurant/bar.

More than 250 people were crowded into the restaurant that night. The suspect, who stabbed both victims, fled the scene.

A lot of people who knew him was quite sadden by his murder. Many friends of mine on Facebook has left R.I.P. message to remember him. While I personally don't know him, I would like to send my deepest condolsence to his family and to his friends. This is just too sudden. He really doesn't deserve this fate.

Right now, I am looking at the wall of a group dedicated to his memory. There are at least 2000 members in less than 24 hours and many nice messages were written. Reading those messages makes me wonder, would it be nice if these message was said before him, or anyone dies? I am sure anyone would appreciate those messages, and surely bring everyone closer to each other. I guess the purpose of this thread is of twofold: to serve as a memory of a tragic death of a young, bright teen, and to remind you all: express your love to your family, friends, and whoever in your life who you appreciate.

R.I.P. buddy.

I'm very sorry for the loss of that young fellow. That's truly horrible what happened. I send my deepest condolences out to his friends and family.
I believe everyday is a gift, and I live life to the fullest because of a near death experience when I was 17. My mom and I were struck by a car, I hate even thinking about it, but it's a miracle we're both alive and well and had no broken bones, but we were injured and badly banged up, which wasn't fun.
I remember before that happened I was sad over the stupidest things that weren't worth it, I was cutting and suicidal and wished I were dead, but BAM just like that that car hit me and common sense hit me along with it, and I was harshly reminded at that moment of my life how fast your life can be over, and how you should treasure life and its value and don't take it for granted, don't spend your time worrying and moping over pointless things.

Justice is served. The murderer is arrested for his crime.
